Hello there, twisted people and Simon!
I’m from Russia so I hope my language is understandable ).
First of all: Okyup, you REALLY need to SHUT THE FUCK UP! Whats with youtube links? Do you realise how stupid you are when talking about complexity of such music? Shpongle is the most complex sound from everything I’ve listened so far. I’ve listened to Carbon Based Lifeforms, Entheogenic and much more. They are REALLY great! But when I’m starting to compare them to Shpongle….well, they become a huge stinky pile of shit! “They have multiple layers of sound…” Did you heard how much sounds in each Shpongle track? I think not. I’m listening Shpongle over 7 years and I’m still finding something new that I never heard before (It’s like magic, Si, thank you!). So don’t you dare to compare Shpongle to those guys! Because Si don’t want to be like others, making copies of other projects. He wants to make something new, something really unusual, he doesn’t afraid to experimentate. Just like scientist ). He even don’t want to make similar albums! That’s why they are all different. He always seeking for something new. There are progress in our world because of men like Si! Thank you, thank you Si! I love you and your work! You’ve always amazed me!
and i’m already ignored Okyup (very usefull function by the way)
Next: Twisted is the best label in the universe and if it disappears world will turn to grey for me (. I cann’t live without Shpongle! It’s unbelievable project!
And now I’m sitting here and get angry that I live in such shithole (little town….it even can be called “village”). And I cann’t buy any twisted CD. Now I know Twisted situation and soon I’ll make a credit card and try to get CDs via post.
Also I hoping to find all Shpongle CDs at live in Moscow (I’ll be there for sure….and in Forum Hall before too…..and every time you come to Russia (by the way Chronos Open Air was unbelievable! Thanks again!)) or maybe final, I’ve heard that on live in London they’ll be. I’m definitely buy 3 or 5 of it. And DVD too! One of my dreams is to buy Shpongle vinyls and put it on the wall in my room!
Yes, I have downloaded copy of last album, but as I’ve said there is no way to get CDs in my town ((((((. About album: it’s awesome! Just like everything you do, Si. To be honest I think the first one is greatest. But they are all outstanding! Shpongle - music that inspires me. It’s so unique. I’m listening it over 7 years and it’s doesn’t get boring at all!
I’ve read about making shows from Simon’s post. It’s really sad and not fair. I thought it’s possible to get some money from shows (. If I get VIP ticket, will you get money from it? Or everything will take Forum Hall (or who ever)? Shit I cann’t throw away a thought that I cann’t do anything and it’s killing me.
And final: It’s about ideas to get money. I have only one for now but it’s hard to me to tell about it because I starting to get feeling that I’m imposing. But still I’ll try. How much do you spend on publishing, Si? It’s just….well…I’m writing music myself and, of course, I’m dreaming about Twisted Rec. as a publisher. So I can post some links to listen and you, Si, and all forum users can listen to it and decide if it’s worth to be published on Twisted. Of course it can be peace of shit, I know…and if it is, I’ll continue to work on my sound and someday, I hope, will join you. But if it’s worth I will give it to you for free (I mean I don’t need to be paid for it at all), you’ll publish it, every one here will buy at least one CD (including me ) and every penny that you’ll get from those you’ll keep for label. I can even write more )...of course if it worth Twisted and not much money will spend on publishing. And there is another reason to me to offer this. I’M DYING FOR YOUR PERSONAL OPINION, SI! And I donn’t have another ideas. So this is it ) i’ll watch this topic.
hhmmm….that was really hard.
Thanks again and again, Si, Raj, Michele Adamson and everyone who somehow connected to Twisted! I hope that this period will pass and we will hear Shpongle5, Hallucinogen3, Younger Brother3 and many many more amazing music! Have a great day and greeting from Russia!
